Emergency Eye Care Visits
An eye emergency is a situation that requires a medical eye care expert between regularly scheduled appointments.
You may need emergency eye care if you experience unusual eye pain, physical trauma, or a sudden change in your vision.
Simcoe Optometric will give priority to patients who require emergency services. Contact us immediately if you experience the following symptoms:
- Sudden loss of vision
- Significant vision interruptions like blurry vision or flashes & floaters
- Pain or extreme discomfort in your eyes
- Persistent headaches or bouts of dizziness
- Radical eye inflammation
Injuries and acute eye diseases can both constitute an eye emergency. Injuries to other parts of the body can affect your eyes and vision. Call us or the nearest hospital in the following situations:
- Traumatic force to the eye or head
- Severe allergic reactions
- Chemical exposure to the eye
- Scrapes, lesions, or punctures on the surface of your eye
- Foreign objects entering the eye
